    I'm in a similar situation in East Hopewell Township, PA. I'm trying to get enough support within the township to request a change to the ordinance. Unfortunately, after attending a township meeting, one of the board members is against the idea of changing the ordinance unless I get half of the township to sign a petition. I am working on getting an official proposal together. Once I get a proposal, I'll work on getting signatures. Everyone I've talked to so far, except that one board member supports the idea of allowing chickens.
